Hi, my 8 year old daughter has been gluten-free for 6 weeks now and she has lost 3 pounds. Everyone that hasn't seen her in a while notice quickly that she lost weight. She of average height and weight, just wondering if anyone's child also lost weight while going gluten-free. We eat pretty healthy even before starting her. . She does have less stomach pain while eating and the diareha is gone. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I lost weight at first too, about 15 lbs, but I think a lot of it was inflammation. My gut went down and my face lost some puffiness... I think very little of it was actually fat or muscle loss.

I lost weight for the first three weeks or so, in spite of being ravenous and eating as much as I could. And I was very thin to start with. Then my weight stabilized.
